Why Invest in a High Performance Home?

The National Green Building Standard is a voluntary certification program that assures you all the green design, sustainable construction practices and energy efficiency claims made by your builder have been verified! Isn’t that terrific peace of mind?

Your NGBS certified home is healthier by providing your family with fresh air ventilation that improves indoor air quality. Care is taken to limit pollutants and contaminates in the home. Proper moisture management means no mold.

Your NGBS certified home has lower operating costs. Efficient energy and water consumption in the home means smaller utility bills. With durable construction and product selection you can expect fewer maintenance costs over time.

Because none of this is mandatory builders, remodelers and developers have the ability to select from an array of green practices and choose those that are best suited for the community, to your preferences, and the Pacific Northwest climate.
